fruin Newport prison to his political friends:
uThe Algerines profess to have a claim upon
me, which they are very slow in bringing to a set
tlement, and for which i urn detained w ithin pris

against their old defunct charter system. My

Very imperfect indeed! “The Democracy”

PEARL STARCH.—A supply of that most
beautiful and superior article received and

I REMARKABLE C*SE—A ease ba* be*n !
! brought before the U. S. Dhtnct Court of Lv,
which is quite remarkable, and i * a hi torv
out of which it has grown are sustained, a history
of almost unparalleled hardship and oppression
will be presented. The suit js brough by
Sally Miller vs. John F. Miller. The plaintiff*
her petition alledges that she is a native o j
mar.v, of honest parentage and legitimate birth
-that her parents came to this country diet
soon after their arrival, and that she. while >eV
too young to know or assert her rights, was
seized bv Miller as a slave,‘deprived of her natu
ral liberty, and made to hold a place with ne
gro. s and those bound to servitude—that she ha
been so held to slavery for more than twenty
years; has had three children by Millers over
seer, one died. the other two have made
slaves—that she was publicly sold in lt-33 to the
gentleman who row holds her m on a?e- .
damages in ihe suit against Miller are aid at
,410.(100. A suit is also brought against Be
lmont, her present owner—the object of which
is to recover her freedom. Able counsel
employed, and the case was to be conducted
with much energy. This might form the foun
dation for a romance. It would not require a
great stretch of imagination to make this poor
woman the child of noble parents, stolen by the
German emigrants—the skillul novelists could
till up a picture of startling incidents, and give a
sequel_and we might have another “Mysteries
of great popularity. Say what we will, hovever
.-truth is stranger than fiction.''—Richmond Coni’
pilcr. ___
Lieut. Governor Moore has commenced the
business of prophesying on his own account, and
we believe in oppositi n to .loe ^mith; having
published a letter in the Chicago Democrat, an
nouncing a revelation to himself on the subject

ol Ine next t residency n
reveal^ to him that Marlin Van Buren is to be in
augurated as President of the United States on
the 4th of March next. Joe on the other band,
vaticinates against «aid event. It is revealed to
him that no such tiling will take place, Mr. Smith
I intending to take the Presidency upon himself.
Our opinion shall be impartially expressed. V\ e
believe one of the seers just as much as^ we do
, the other except so far as it regards Joe s nega
! tive prophecy. In that, we have the utmost con
fidence he is right, and we believe farther, that
his chance for the post he prophecies about is
quite as good as that of Mr. \ an Buren, nor do
believe the people have much preference between
i them—unless indeed, the Merman candidate is
j considered a little less noncommittal than his
! competitor, and therefore, the best of the two.

HIGH SANCTIONS.—As the Whig party
have incurred many hard names, such as federal
ist, Aristocrat, &.C., by their advocacy of a Uni
ted States Bank, it may he as well to record a
fact in reference to that subject which lias been
brought to our notice hy the remarks of Mr. Gar
rett Davis,of Kentucky, at the recent Whig meet
ing in New \ ork in honor of Mr. Clay s birth
•kiy. Mr. I). stated that of the thirty-seven del
egates who signed the Declaration of Independ
ence, thirty-two of them, together with General
Washington, supported the establishment of a U.
States Dank. We are aware that this piece of j
history w ill be considered a matter of little conse- j
quence by Uocofooo politicians w’ho aie imbued
with the spirit of “progressive Democracy, ’ but j
trust that it will not he without its weight with
the honest ami patriotic who constitute the great,
hotly of the party. Let this lact ho circulated
through the country, and we cannot well con
ceive how demagogues will he able to summon
the effrontery to denounce as enemies of the peo*
pie those who are endeavoring to restore the in
stitutions of their forefathers.— Whig Standard♦
SANDS’ S A USA PA K ILLA.-An eminent wri
ter observes, that if a man in Europe were to go
to bed with the conviction that China would be
swallowed up bv nn Earthquake that night he
would he less uflected than by the knowle ge
that hi^ own little finger was to he amputated the
following morning. It is strange with all this
selfishness, that men should take so little pains to
j guard against disease, and to arrest its progress,
j A speci c for that terrible scourge of the human
| family, Scrofula, has lately been discovered, and
! vet the statistics of our hospitals and other chari
1 table institutions, as well as the general hills of
! mortality, show that this disease annually de
! stroNs whole hecatombs of victims, in Samis1
Sarsaparilla a certain and speedy remedy is pro
vided for Scrofula and all other disorders origi
nating in unhealthy secretions and a diseased
